Release Notes March 11, 2022 Enhancements and Behind the Scenes Improvements

Happy March! This release focuses on making Polaris more in line with your business needs. We improved the POI Module to use SVG files as custom Point of Interest Pins! We also implemented up and down arrows in the Compare Tab within the Mapping Centre’s Trade Area section. We are always open to hearing your suggestions, so let us know what you think of this update!


New Features

  • Upload an SVG file as a POI Pin!
    • You can now choose to upload an SVG image as the pin image for a POI file in Mapping Centre–giving you a wider breadth of visual control. SVG files retain their high resolution when they are scaled up.
